Algebra 2 by Ramji Lal Book Summary:

This is the second in a series of three volumes dealing with important topics in algebra. Volume 2 is an introduction to linear algebra (including linear algebra over rings), Galois theory, representation theory, and the theory of group extensions. The section on linear algebra (chapters 1–5) does not require any background material from Algebra 1, except an understanding of set theory. Linear algebra is the most applicable branch of mathematics, and it is essential for students of science and engineering As such, the text can be used for one-semester courses for these students. The remaining part of the volume discusses Jordan and rational forms, general linear algebra (linear algebra over rings), Galois theory, representation theory (linear algebra over group algebras), and the theory of extension of groups follow linear algebra, and is suitable as a text for the second and third year students specializing in mathematics.

Elements of the Representation Theory of the Jacobi Group by Rolf Berndt,Ralf Schmidt Book Summary:

The Jacobi group is a semidirect product of a symplectic group with a Heisenberg group. It is an important example for a non-reductive group and sets the frame within which to treat theta functions as well as elliptic functions - in particular, the universal elliptic curve. This text gathers for the first time material from the representation theory of this group in both local (archimedean and non-archimedean) cases and in the global number field case. Via a bridge to Waldspurger's theory for the metaplectic group, complete classification theorems for irreducible representations are obtained. Further topics include differential operators, Whittaker models, Hecke operators, spherical representations and theta functions. The global theory is aimed at the correspondence between automorphic representations and Jacobi forms. This volume is thus a complement to the seminal book on Jacobi forms by M. Eichler and D. Zagier. Incorporating results of the authors' original research, this exposition is meant for researchers and graduate students interested in algebraic groups and number theory, in particular, modular and automorphic forms.

The Mathematics of Frobenius in Context by Thomas Hawkins Book Summary:

Frobenius made many important contributions to mathematics in the latter part of the 19th century. Hawkins here focuses on his work in linear algebra and its relationship with the work of Burnside, Cartan, and Molien, and its extension by Schur and Brauer. He also discusses the Berlin school of mathematics and the guiding force of Weierstrass in that school, as well as the fundamental work of d'Alembert, Lagrange, and Laplace, and of Gauss, Eisenstein and Cayley that laid the groundwork for Frobenius's work in linear algebra. The book concludes with a discussion of Frobenius's contribution to the theory of stochastic matrices.

Infinite Divisibility of Probability Distributions on the Real Line by Fred W. Steutel,Klaas van Harn Book Summary:

Infinite Divisibility of Probability Distributions on the Real Line reassesses classical theory and presents new developments, while focusing on divisibility with respect to convolution or addition of independent random variables. This definitive, example-rich text supplies approximately 100 examples to correspond with all major chapter topics and reviews infinite divisibility in light of the central limit problem. It contrasts infinite divisibility with finite divisibility, discusses the preservation of infinite divisibility under mixing for many classes of distributions, and investigates self-decomposability and stability on the nonnegative reals, nonnegative integers, and the reals.

Théorie de Morse et homologie de Floer by Michèle Audin,Mihai Damian Book Summary:

Cet ouvrage est une introduction aux méthodes modernes de la topologie symplectique. Il est consacré à un problème issu de la mécanique classique, la “conjecture d'Arnold’, qui propose de minimiser le nombre de trajectoires périodiques de certains systèmes hamiltoniens par un invariant qui ne dépend que de la topologie de la variété symplectique sur laquelle évolue ce système. Ce livre comporte deux parties : une présentation moderne de la théorie de Morse, suivie d'une introduction à l'homologie de Floer - une théorie de Morse en dimension infinie qui est à l'origine des progrès récents en géométrie symplectique et de contact; il vient combler une lacune dans la littérature, puisqu'il n'existe pas de référence absolument complète et accessible sur le sujet.

Contre-jour by Thomas Pynchon Book Summary:

Avec ce roman planétaire et foisonnant qui débute par l'Exposition universelle de Chicago, en 1893, pour s'achever au lendemain de la Première Guerre mondiale, à Paris, Pynchon réussit son œuvre la plus ambitieuse et la plus émouvante. S'attachant à dépeindre aussi bien les luttes anarchistes dans l'Ouest américain que la Venise du tournant du siècle, les enjeux ferroviaires d'une Europe sur le point de basculer dans un conflit généralisé, les mystères de l'Orient mythique ou les frasques de la révolution mexicaine, l'auteur déploie une galerie de personnages de roman-feuilleton en perpétuelle expansion – jeunes aéronautes, espions fourbes, savants fous, prestidigitateurs, amateurs de drogue, etc. –, tous embringués dans des mésaventures dignes des Marx Brothers. Au cœur du livre, la famille Traverse : Webb, mineur et as de la dynamite, exécuté sur ordre du ploutocrate Scarsdale Vibe ; ses enfants, tous hantés par la mort de leur père, certains bien décidés à le venger, d'autres déjà avalés par les contradictions du siècle naissant. Et gravitant autour d'eux, tels des astres égarés, quelques figures hautes en couleur, qui toutes ont un compte à régler avec le pouvoir. Veillant sur ce " petit monde ", quelque part dans les airs : les Casse-Cou, bande de joyeux aéronautes qui, avec le lecteur, suivent non sans inquiétude la lente montée des périls. Empruntant avec jubilation à tous les genres – fantastique, espionnage, aventure, western, gaudriole –, rythmé par des incursions dans des temps et des mondes parallèles, écrit dans une langue tour à tour drolatique et poignante, savante et gourmande, Contre-jour s'impose comme une épopée toute tendue vers la grâce.
